Maha bar raided by cops some days ago demolished by civic team
The action by the civic body's anti-encroachment team started at 11:30pm on Thursday and ended an hour past midnight on Friday, they added.
In a raid carried out by Kashimira police under senior inspector Sanjay Hazare on May 8, the bar was found to be open despite COVID-19 directives to shut such places, and a specially made cavity was unearthed in the structure in which women were kept in dingy and dangerous conditions.
The civic action of demolishing the restaurant-bar structure came after police wrote to the MBMC on illegalities found during the May 8 raid, officials added.
